Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HUTECH)

Founded in 1995, HUTECH is a multidisciplinary university with four locations in Ho Chi Minh City. The main campus is located in the central neighbourhood of Binh Thanh, approximately 7 km from the city centre. The private university offers more than 60 Bachelor's degree courses in various disciplines, such as Engineering and Technology, Economic and Management, Architecture and Arts, Health Sciences, Law, Social Sciences and Humanities, Foreign Languages, Culture and Arts. It currently also offers 13 Master's degree courses in the areas of Engineering, Economics, Tourism, Foreign Languages and Law, as well as PhD degree courses in Electrical Engineering and Business Administration.

The cooperation agreement with HUTECH applies to all of HAW Hamburg, but the focus of the exchange is the engineering degree courses, and specifically the area of automotive and aeronautical engineering, and the Department of Business. We are working on expanding the exchange to other areas.

The HUTECH is a partner in the HaMoNee – Hamburg/Hanoi Mobile Engineers project, which enables HAW Hamburg students to spend a tuition-free study semester abroad at the HUST or one of the three other partner universities in Vietnam. Students selected for an exchange can also apply for a full scholarship.
